the one with a wood circle

do you guys ever get an idea and you just have no idea where it came from? it just popped into your head and there it was . . . that’s what happened with this. I saw these wood circles while searching for arts and crafts on amazon and I immediately saw a chalkboard on it. When I see it, I see it with a blue door . . . so I searched and searched for another image like that and I can’t find it . . . I guess I want another blue door . . .


I was worried about getting a perfect circle on there so I embraced not being perfect before I even began. when I got started I saw a darker line about an inch from the edge and decided to use that as my outline. Then I just painted within that circle . . . as I expected it was not perfect . . . so I took a black permanent maker and filled it in a little better so it looks a straight.


Then I got some fun ribbon out of my stash, stapled it to the back, and made a pretty bow . . . All done! Easier front door décor I’ve ever made, and one of the cutest. I especially love that with a little change of the ribbon I can use this one year round!


What do you think? anybody else out there with an obsession with chalkboards. I blame Jessica.

Hump Day Happenings #62 and a chalkboard

You know I love my chalkboards! But my trust little chalkboard needed an updated. When I found this lovely vintage looking frame – on the side of the street – I knew it was perfect. Be sure to check out my crafty spot for the tutorial. But before you go  . . . link up with us 🙂
